MONROEVILLE, Ind. (WANE) The lone bank in Monroeville will leave town, Newschannel 15 has confirmed.
A PNC spokeswoman said today the Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania-based banking institution will consolidate the operations at its branch at 103 Main St. in Monroeville, effectively closing it. The spokeswoman said the consolidation is a result of more people using online, mobile and ATMs for their banking needs.
The spokeswoman said the PNC account holders will be transferred to another PNC branch in the area. Customers will be notified of the transitional consolidation in a letter in the coming days, the spokeswoman said.
The banks employees could be transferred to another PNC branch, the spokeswoman said, as is customary in these consolidations.
A viewer using the ReportIt feature tipped Newschannel 15 off to the plans.
A Monroeville town official told Newschannel 15 the bank will close at the end of October, and said the town is shopping for another bank or credit union to fill the town’s banking void. That official asked not to be named.
